Great bird and amazing frames. Where did you get them?

I've been flying mine for sometime now and you want probably to save some weight in the tail, even more now that you have installed the carbon frames.

Cheers from sunny Spain.

Ok, now that you asked, some of my thoughts:

0) These is a really sweet machine and it performs close to a 60 size machine, very stable and rock solid. But I have modified some things

This is what I've done to mine:

1) It is tail heavy as all JR helis, so you may wnat to remove horizontal fin and change vertical to carbon (less than half the weight in the tail end)

2) Change tail blades to K&S (plastic) or SAB (carbon) for instance since they do not hold the tail backwards and have poor eficiency. Beware , this mod makes a great difference.

3) Changed alu tail boom support braces to carbon (exactly half the weight)

I'd like to try the carbon frame but are too expensive for me, so Im saving some bucks.

Also I have changed the plastic elevator arm connecting to swashplate's front ball since I consider JR made a mistake with this piece. In my opinion this piece should be at least 5 mm shorter than it actually is, also this can't be corrected since it is not adjustable in lenght. I'm now using the Vigor CS aluminum one which is adjustable and fits perfectly.

Hope it is of any help to you.

Cheers from Spain

I also think it's a great heli, took the paddlewights out to get more respons, I have no problem with it to be tailheavy, maybe my rx-battery is a little bit heavier than yours.

But I also noticed that the orginal tailblades may be a little bit to unefficient, (in one piruetting knifeedge in heavy wind the heli hesitated to piruett "over the top" a little bit and I felt uneasy with it.

But for ordinary flying they are ok.

Why do u think this plastic arm is 5mm to long Forrest G?

Happy landings

also which arm is it. Is it the black plastic one on the front of the swashplate. I only had 2 add 30g to the front to balance it out. 1 question tho i have put on the covers over the fins as i like the look but i think they r going to come off soon. What have u used to stick them on

The arm I'm talking about is for CCPM configuration so if you're in MPM disregard what I'm going to say from now on.

Swashplate has 3 balls in 120 degrees configuration, one in the front and two at the rear. The two at the rear are connected directly to servos via the link rods. But the one in the front has a black plastic triangular piece that fits in the swashplate's ball and at the bottom has two bearings connecting to the elevator lever .

If you set your elevator level to be at 90 degrees with this piece as stated in the manual (easy to see because the nut connecting the two pieces must be aligned with a hole in the chasis) then sawshplate is too high and washout arms are not leveled at zero degrees.

If you don't see what I mean I'll try to upload some photos.

Cheers.

Ok, I understand, You mean with right and left servo (plates) horisontal and the mentioned, level, the swash will tilt approx 5mm backwards?

Hmm, well thats nothing I've noticed but that can be, but isn't it something you just can either subtrim or mechanical trim away if so?

(I got to check this when at home tomorrow, at work now)

But "The two at the rear are connected directly to servos via the link rods." That's with the 30, isn't it? On my 50 there are two rods from the servoplate to one leverer and from it, one rod to the swashplateball..

But thats perhaps what you mean

Yes that what I meant, just trying to save some words. I have a continuous strong fight with English language ;-)

Also yes, swashplate falls backward if you set elevator arm to 90 degrees that's what I meant. You either have to decide to have the arm at 90 degrees or to have washout arms leveled but not both things at the same tiem, as it should be.

I couldn't agree more, to be swedish and almost 20years since left school, the words in english just aren't there sometimes

But to the subject, as mentioned before I got to check how mine looks when back at home.

But if you can't have both at level att the same time, does that have any practical effect do you think, so much one shold concider buying one other kind and replace?

What about extend the two rods to the back swashplateballs, aprrox 5mm, doesn't that equel it out or am I way off now....

The effect you have is a non linear travel in the swashplate that should be corrected with the pitch curve. You would have different travels for the same servo movement .

If you just enlarge the rods, the the problem is that your washout base will hit with the bottom part of the main hub at 10 degrees

I would prefer first option (non linear).

Forrest G.
